Jose Mourinho has overworked his Chelsea men and could pay for it

Former Chelsea man Craig Burley breaks down Chelsea's 1-1 draw with reigning title holders Manchester City.

There were a reported 650 million people looking on from across the globe but planet Earth may not have been too impressed by an often-turgid encounter between English football's two best teams. Five points remains the gap between leaders Chelsea and Manchester City.

As expected, neither team was ready to bet the farm on the whole affair. Given that their need for victory...

Sources: Mohamed Salah set for Monday medical with Fiorentina

As the 2015 January transfer promises to provide a few more meaningful transfers, take a look back at the best transfers of last year's winter transfer window, including Arsenal bust Kim Kallstrom.

Chelsea winger Mohamed Salah is to travel to Florence on Monday to undergo a medical ahead of his loan move to Fiorentina, sources have told ESPN FC.
